How to configure Idera backup agent
Installing Agent Using YUM
First, create a YUM .repo file with the R1Soft repository information.
Open the new file with a text editor such as vi or nano:
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
Insert the following text into the file and save the file:
name=R1Soft Repository Server
Once done run below command.
yum clean all
Now install cdp agent
yum install r1soft-cdp-enterprise-agent
yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers
yum upgrade kernel
install r1soft kernel binaries
Restart r1soft agent after binaries are done.
